There are different places to look for Bible study topics. Some of the ways previously written about here are topical Bibles and concordances. Another great place to look for Bible study topics is in the study guide section of your local Christian bookstore.
In the study guide area you will often find books arranged in broad topics such as: women’s interests, men’s interests, teens, children and students. There may also be sections based on certain books of the Bible. By flipping through some of these study guides you can generate plenty of study topics for personal use or for small group studies.
If you are only looking for ideas, then there is no need to buy several books. Browsing through a book with a 3X5 card in hand can give you a list of topics. You should not stand in the bookstore and copy down whole lessons. If you are interested in that, then you should certainly buy the book. But if you are just needing to generate a list of ideas, this is a quick way to load up an idea file with Bible study topics.
